Jimmie Walker of ‘Good Times’ Blasts President Obama

Jimmy Walker was once the king of black sitcoms in the 1970s

Seventies sitcom icon Jimmie Walker, better known as “J.J.” of “Good Times,” blasted President Obama during an interview with Bill O’Reilly on Fox. Walker compared Obama to Tony Robbins as someone who makes you feel good, but the economy is still in tatters and it’s not enough for African Americans to keep supporting him because of his race.

“It’s like meeting Tony Robbins. You feel good and happy and everything, but then you go home and there’s a foreclosure sign on your door,” said Walker, whose iconic ’70s character was known for saying “dynamite” on a regular basis. “I just think that he is not the guy.”

Walker was rumored to be dating close friend and racial pimp Ann Coulter

Walker emphasized that has nothing against the president, and even likes him, but “he’s not a good guy for the job we have to do.”

O’Reilly gleefully raised the point that when Walker makes such statements publicly that he is probably the object of an African-American backlash. But Walker rationalized why Obama’s race simply isn’t enough for him to get black support.

See what he has to say below.
